Forget me not- Mandasue Heller

This was the first book I've read by Mandasue Heller. A killer is targeting prostitutes and placing forget me nots on their mutilated body. The book focusses largely on Lisa Noone whose mother, Pat, is a prostitute. Lisa has a cocky arrogance about her but does worry about her mum. One night after arguing with her best friend Lisa meets a man who seems completely smitten with her but does seem to know a lot about her. Benny is 20 and she is only 12 so her friends don't believe she can be telling the truth when she reports it to them.

This is a good book and builds up the characters really well. It focusses much more on the storyline of Lisa and her mum rather than on the police investigations. I was disappointed to hear that DI Sneddon doesn't feature in any other books. I do like series'!!


  1. I do like Mandasue Heller and found her to be a lighter version of Martina Cole. I have one of her books in the pile to go to the charity shop, can't remember the name of it though.

    If you want I can send it on to you?
